USA retain Junior Ryder Cup

Europe won the singles 7½ to 4½ at the Junior Ryder Cup on Tuesday, but the USA won the tie 13½ -10½.

Europe won the singles 7½ to 4½ at the Junior Ryder Cup on Tuesday, but it wasn’t enough to stop defending champions USA, taking the tie 13½ -10½
This because of the massive 9-3 lead the Americans had opened up at Gleneagles in Tuesday’s foursomes and fourballs.
In truth Europe hopes were ended early on the final day.
Trailing 9-3 at the start of the day, Europe had to take the final session by the same 9-3 score just to force a tie, but their hopes were ended when they lost three of the first five games and halved another.
Star once more for the United States, who won by an incredible 22-2 margin two years ago, was Jordan Spieth.
The 17-year-old, who finished 16th in the US PGA Tour’s Byron Nelson Championship in May, won all three of his games and looks to be a player with an especially big future.
